I've written about Chanel polishes before, so I won't go into too much detail here. The formula on Dragon really is pretty bad - I don't think I've ever gotten more than four days without noticeable chipping. I haven't been impressed with Chanel's formula in general and Dragon's is the worst. But I've never found such a perfect red in a brand with better wear so I deal.
This photo was taken after two days of wear. This was a one-coat rushed manicure but you can still see the tipwear and scratches that I just don't get while wearing other brands with the same topcoat and basecoat combination.
I love this particular polish because of the unique shade and the good memories associated with it...but I do think it's disgraceful that Chanel charges so much for a functionally inferior product. With all the beauty innovation and resources at their disposal I'd expect much better. If anyone has any suggestions for the same color made by another brand, please do let me know!
Chanel Dragon is $26.00 at Chanel.com
